Question Overlapping Images: Putting images on top of another

Hi I wanted to know how to put images on top of each other just like this website: http://leucadiapizza.com/menu/mainmenu.htm . I know it has something to do with layers but i have to open up each image, and each image has its own independent layers. How do i merge pics together???

make one file who's size is big enough to fit everything else in and then open each image and select all (CTRL+A) and copy (CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) into the blank document.

I opened up a new blank image and opened up a few images but I cannot select all. When I press ctrl+A it only selects one of the images, the new blank one or other ones, and it just "selects the canvas." There is no select all option in the file menu either. Am I doing something wrong?

K nevermind, I figured out what you were saying. However I have another question. When i move the objects, the background of the image appears. Basically what Im tryin to say is that i have an image and I want to isolate it so that only the image appears and not the background of it. I have used the wand and chose no background color but when I save it as a jpeg file, it automatcially gives me a white background. How do I avoid this so that my image will map onto any background (an image background, such as a texture one)?

for transparent images (which is what you're going for i believe) save as a gif...or preferably a .png file.
png file's are larger in size at time's, but definitely better quality.
it all depends on your image though...
but, jpeg's can't have tranpsarent backgrounds..
sorry if i stumbled at all in this post...i'm tie tie.

If you want complex overlaid pictures with backgrounds, the best way to handle that is to make a fake background totally filled with the background colour of your webpage - that way it seems seamless. If you do that it won't matter what image format you use... although .JPG might be better for file-size reasons.
